HARRISON, N.Y. -- Sixty-degree temperatures brought hungry hot-dog truck customers out in droves on Thursday.

They lined up outside Anthony's New York Hotdogs & More along Westchester Avenue near Rye Brook and off Route 120 in Purchase.

Anthony Romeo, 45, began selling food from his first truck in 2005 at 120 Lockwood Ave. in his hometown of New Rochelle.

His second mobile food truck opened in 2006 near 2975 Westchester Ave. in Harrison.

Romeo’s third food truck celebrates its second anniversary this month just south of Westchester County Airport at 4579 Purchase St.

Lunch at one of Anthony’s trucks ranges from $2.25 for a plain hot dog, to $7 for a sausage and pepper or Philly cheesesteak hero. Romeo’s busiest hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The truck’s most popular meal is “Anthony’s Texas chili." Roadside customers can order the chili on their hot dogs, hamburgers, sausage or fries. Romeo even set up a picnic table this season on Webb Avenue just north of Bowman Avenue.

The trucks also sell hot and cold beverages, candy, chips and Linden’s cookies ­— the locally produced baked goods that date back to 1934 in Scarsdale. Romeo said he met the Sturz family, which bought the pastry company in 1960 from the Linden brothers when they were based in White Plains.
